There are No Richard Geres

I want to write to the myth of the Good Punter.

This myth is daily destroying the prostitute, this myth is daily allowing sex trade profiteers to carry business as normal.

It is the fundamental myth that allows outsiders to walk on by as the prostituted are being tortured every moment of every day in every continent.

The concept of the Good Punter is used everywhere to silenced the prostituted speaking to their hells.

If you have a heart, if you use your logical mind, if you stop long enough to truly hear exited women – then you would know it is impossible for the Good Punter to exist.

It is not possible to be classed as good if you make it your entitlement to buy another human for sexual wants.

It is not possible to be classed as good if you make the choice to use your money or exchanging goods to say the prostitute has no right to say no.

The belief in the Good Punter is always interlinked with the myth that the purchase of the prostituted is the purchase of consent.

That is why many exited women would state loud and clear that to buy a prostitute is to buy to rape.

For if you make a system of prostitution where the purpose is to erode all human rights from the prostituted – then you are making all prostitution in rape and a perfect environment for sexual torturing.

In that environment, there is no such thing as the Good Punter – only that some rapists are quicker, more gentle or just messing with the prostitute’s mind.

The so-called Good Punter still owns and will control the prostitute.

The so-called Good Punter can and will be violent at any time or any place to any prostitute, and still claim to be a good man.

The Good Punter has blood on his hands, the Good Punter is hidden in plain sight.

Because most punters get away with hate and violence – it appears that we have decided most punters must fit the role of the Good Punter, or just it a rite of passage.

Look how we ignore the hoards of punters.

I can see just in the small space of the city I live in the slow deaths of the prostituted.

I know the marginalised prostituted who have no choice but be on the streets in some industrial estate.

I see how the punters are allowed to cruise and hunt down these prostitutes, how they pay pathetic amounts of money to humiliate and slowly murder her essence.

I know this is made normal, as we decide these punters are just letting off steam, just desperate men – never seeing into the truth, they are just very ordinary men who just think it is their right to buy another human.

I know that at any moment, there is a punter in my city just tapping into a computer to buy indoors prostitution.

He is ordering a living person as he would order a pizza – no more and certainly no less.

It is goods he is buying, he has no concept that a prostitute can be human with rights, with a past or a future, with any existence outside his porn dreams.

He is buying a porn-doll that may be breathing, but once brought must adapt to each and every fantasy that the punter has.

The punter order up an escort or girlfriend experience to buy her silence.

It is that silence where all his sadism is placed – giving the illusion of the Good Punter.

I know in my city that punters in groups go into brothels or massage parlours, egging each other on to buy the prostitute.

Each punter who uses the excuse of peer pressure or being too drunk/stoned, or just wanting to be  part of the group – will say he is the Good Punter.

Only every man can say no to buying a prostitute, every man can walk away from peer pressure, every man can grow a heart that could never pay to rape.

Men can make the choice not to be a punter – he has that freedom to truly understand that is the start of understanding what it to be human, what it is to becoming part of the good.

Punters always have the choice to stop – they are not trapped like the prostituted are.

So don’t say there must be good punters, for then you are just saying there is good violence, good forms of slavery and good rapists.

  1. Thank you. Thank you. This is an incredible post. Some pimps will actually use the “glamorisation” of prostitution in the media to help “recruit” teenagers in to the life. We have to stop seeing this as a good way for any woman to live.

  3. Excellent post! Love this:

    “Men can make the choice not to be a punter – he has that freedom to truly understand that is the start of understanding what it to be human, what it is to becoming part of the good. Punters always have the choice to stop – they are not trapped like the prostituted are.”

    and this:

    “So don’t say there must be good punters, for then you are just saying there is good violence, good forms of slavery and good rapists.”

    Punters/johns/pimps will come up with infinite reasons/excuses of why it’s hard for them to be wholly human and understand these truths and behave from them. Whatever the reason/excuse, it comes from a place of ego and fear and immaturity & inhumanity. Bottom line is men need to take some personal responsibility and stop. That is what it means to be fully human, to understand how our actions impact others, and stop hurting people.

  4. If men chose to stop raping there would be no more rape. If men chose to stop murdering animals they could run free in the woods. If men stopped purchasing porn and prostitutes and sex slaves and young girls etc. there would be NO MORE SEX “^NDUSTRY!” Supply and demand! But this will never happen. They will never ever stop raping/murdering/abusing/assaulting/buying a woman or girl! Never! That’s because that is the way men are. Who is doing all of this raping and murdering? MEN! Why can’t people SAY it? Instead they blame us women with nonsense like it was our fault. Our fault for the actions of men. Our fault for what they choose to do and the choices they make. Blame it all on women and girls. Men-grow up and take responsibility for your horrible actions!!
